Rebecca Brooks is outraged because of intrusions in her private life and untrue stories in the press against her and her family, she complains they are being harassed and lied about. Their privacy is apparently being invaded. Her and her man Charlie have just had their collar felt. In today's febrile atmosphere it seems no one is safe. Robespierre and Danton your time has come, bless your efforts, do not spare them. Bring out the tumbrels and the knitting needles. "Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
But to be young was very Heaven!" William Wordsworth on the French Revolution.
WTF is this country coming to? we are going to hell in a hand cart. What we need is crusading right wing newspaper to campaign to bring back corporal punishment for prisoners in jail and capital punishment for schoolchildren who misbehave. What we need is a courageous editor who will not spare sinners, sinners who will be identified by her or him of course and there will be no mercy. Someone from the colonies perhaps with some influential Scottish friends perhaps?
Can anyone think of a hero prepared to carry the fight to the traitors and the workshy scroungers? No I don't mean the Royals! arrest that man! who is prepared to come to our rescue using the sword of truth and the trusty shield of fair play? Remember citizens 'we are all in this together'
If they come for the fragrant Rebecca in the night they will come for us in the morning, then the baw will be oan the slates. Then we will see our heroic British Soldiers or are they Scottish / British Soldiers ? I'm not sure any more, shoot down insurgents in the streets. Come what may we will survive here in bonny Scotland and we will still have her majesty Queen Elizabeth to inspire us. She really loves us this I know, because wee eck (the spiv) told us so.
